towns

I really ought to take more opportunity to add bits to this blog when the mood takes me - especially since I can do it practically anywhere.

Still, here I am again - this time to write of my mild surprise at a book. I was in ASDA a couple of days ago, and was looking amongst the shelves of what seem mainly to be autobiographies (Beckham, Burrell... are they releasing them in alphabetical order these days?) for possible Christmas present ideas.

Crap Towns - The 50 Worst places to live in Britain attracted my attention, as it's fairly obviously a comedy book. So, what would anyone do in this situation? I had a good browse through to see if I could find Luton - or even Dunstable (which I consider to be even worse) - and neither was featured. However, I was further outraged to see that the little seaside town where I spent my later childhood (Bexhill-on-Sea - an unassuming [OK... a bit dull] but pretty south-coast old-people's home) was at number 8!.

Time, I think, to make a "Delight or Dump?" game (identify Luton or Bexhill from photos - although I've been warned by Beth not to be too biased!) ... more on this travesty, no doubt, later.
